Welcome to GlyCosmos!!

The GlyCosmos Portal is the official web portal of the Japanese Society for Carbohydrate Research (JSCR). It aims to provide a central location from which glycoscience-related web resources can be accessed, including glycan-related genes, proteins, glycoconjugates, diseases and pathways. GlyCosmos is also a member of the GlySpace Alliance, ensuring that all data is openly shared with the glycoscience community.




GlyTouCan is the international glycan structure repository.


GlyComb is the international glycoconjugate repository.
Currently under construction.
Glycoproteomics Data


GlycoPOST is a data repository of sharing glycoproteomics data.
